UNSCAM UPDATE: UN Let Oil-for-Food Abuse Occur:

Multiple investigations now under way in Washington, Iraq and at the United Nations center on one straightforward question: How did Saddam amass so much money while under international sanctions?

An examination of the program suggests an equally straightforward answer: The United Nations let him do it.

“Everybody said it was a terrible shame and against international law, but there was really no enthusiasm to tackle it,” said Peter van Walsum, a Dutch diplomat who headed the Iraq sanctions committee in 1999 and 20000, recalling the discussions of illegal oil surcharges.

Well, that’s a shocker.
